Dave Sanderson was the last person off the plane that landed in the Hudson River. He was interviewed by Chuck Bolena for Journey To Success Radio.
Dave Sanderson is the Managing Partner of his
firm, Dave Sanderson Speaks Enterprises based out of Charlotte, NC.
On January 15, 2009, Dave was the last passenger off the plane that crashed into the Hudson River, best known as “The Miracle on the Hudson” and was largely responsible for making sure so many others made it out safely.
In addition to speaking and training, Dave conducts workshops and his recently released book titled “Moments Matter”, discusses how employing 12 key resources that he learned from his 30 years in sales and being head of security for Anthony Robbins was a main factor that turned a potential tragedy into the “Miracle on the Hudson.” He shares how to take a potentially tragic experience and turn it into an opportunity to grow. His talk “JOLT,” will be released in an upcoming TedX talk in 2017 in which he details how to help those suffering with PTSD into PTGS. He and his wife, Terri, reside in Charlotte, NC. They have four children, Chelsey, Colleen, Courtney and Chance.
"Brace for impact." Three simple words that proclaimed to all 150 passengers on board US Airways Flight 1549 on that cold, crisp New York afternoon of January 15, 2009, that their plane was about to go down in the icy Hudson River. Three simple words that churned up their fear that the next two minutes would be their final moments on earth and spurred their most heartfelt, spontaneous prayers. We all know about the stunning tale of survival against all odds that followed.
But there is a different, more meaningful, and more timely story that has yet to be fully told. What happened to these passengers when they went home to their families, their homes, their jobs, and everything else familiar but somehow not the same? What has been the real impact, not of a disastrous crash but of a gift of a 'new' life? What can any of us learn from the honest and open sharing of ordinary people who came back from the brink of death?
Brace for Impact answers these questions and more by taking you inside the hearts, minds, and souls of twenty-five passengers and first responders and what life is like after near death.
